How Could I Forget Violet?! {Boston newborn photography}

To be fair I haven’t forgotten Violet, it’s just that she’s probably old enough to vote by now (make good voting choices, Violet!)

I had a delightful time last year photographing Raymond , who is the first-born to high school classmate of mine, Alison, so I was very happy to hear from Allison again! This time, it’s a girl! Violet was a sweet little love to be sure, and photographing their growing family was something I really appreciate being given the opportunity to do.

On the wall in Alison and Ed’s home was the family photo I’d taken last year - I love seeing that! It’s not just because I took it (though that is a source of pride), but I always hope that my clients will get a chance to actually print their photos after going through all the scheduling and outfit choosing and primping for a session.

It makes me feel good to know that they are actually enjoying the fruits of our collective efforts!

I Really Know What I'm Doing! {Boston Family Photographer}

The quote from the title of this entry is not coming from me, but rather Ellie, 7-and-a-half, who said during her family’s session “After five years of doing this, I really know what I'm doing!”

I have been photographing Ellie and her family for, you guessed it, five years now. I was recently reflecting on the fact that it has now been ten years since I moved back to Boston from West Palm Beach, Florida! I never would have imagined ten years ago that I would have a steady collection of wonderful people who trust me with capturing their annual family photos.

Here is a collection from my fall shoots this year. It’s been a super-busy season and the season isn’t quite over yet, but I wanted to share just the same.

• Rumana and Her Family • {Boston family photographer}

These were shot before Christmas but I wanted to share them because I'm so grateful to Rumana for being a repeat offender to Cydney Scott Photography. Maybe that title doesn't quite work - what I mean is she's hired me many times since Aayan, her oldest son, was six months old

Then again at one year old. And then Aayan turned two and Rehan was on the way.

Then suddenly Rehan was one !

It had been a while though when I got a bittersweet email - they were moving away and wanted some photos at their home, and also, they now have a spunky little girl named Samira who was just about to turn two!

Samira kept me on my toes which I love. Nothing better than a feisty girl who knows what she wants, Aayan had the same sweet, gentle demeanor as always, and Rehan, the "middle child" has such a twinkle in his eye.

I'll miss you guys!

• Zachary is in the Building! {boston newborn photographer} •

I had the pleasure of photographing Lauren and Matt's wedding a few years back and was pretty psyched to meet the newest member of their family. Zachary sure is a sweet little bug!

• End-of-Summer Wrap-Up! {Boston Portrait Photographer} •

It was a hectic summer for Cydney Scott Photography and I'm sure everyone can relate. I decided to do and end-of summer wrap-up post here, sharing the greatest hits of the tail end of summer which included a very foggy mini session day (as always my clients were completely on-board despite the odd weather pattern. I'm one lucky photog!), a session in western MA, another on the cape and even a session with some family members of my own! Fluffy dogs, bikes in dresses, and bubbles. What more could you need in life?

Bryce is Here! {boston newborn photographer}

Kristin and Benjamin found me years ago and hired me to shoot their engagement photos. Then, they hired me to shoot their wedding!  Then came Brayden! And then some time went by and I photographed everyone together.

And now Bryce is here! Yay for Bryce! And now Kristin and her three Bs are in a new home and lucky for me, it had big windows, lots of light, and a super chill, happy baby Bryce!  (click to enlarge)

•Where There's a Will, There's a Babe {Boston Newborn Photographer}•

A while back I photographed Jessica and Brendan's wedding, then a while after that I photographed their first baby, Jack, as a newborn. I'm puzzled as to why that session isn't on the blog somewhere but I assure you it has nothing to do with that kid's cute-factor. He was and is, adorbs.

A few years later, I get an email from Jessica, letting me know that Will has arrived! And now, you get to meet him, too. (click to enlarge)

•The W Family {Boston Family Photographer}•

Stephani found me through another client of mine and I'm so grateful she did! Her youngest was just coming up on one year, and I was to take some family shots and some portraits of her little gentleman. 

Such beautiful, big eyes! (click to enlarge)

• Maddie and Her Little Sister Isabelle {Boston Family Photographer}•

I first met Maddie and her parents Jeff and Debbie years ago, when Maddie was just a bitty thing.

Now, Maddie is a big sister to Isabelle, and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting her, and seeing Maddie and their parents again. Look at those baby blues!

•Clementine! {Boston baby photographer}•

Now that her adoption is official and her parents have shared her arrival, I can do the same!

What a happy little girl Miss Clementine is! And Sophie is such a sweet big sis. Welcome to the family, little one!

•Raymond's Here and He's The Cutest {Boston newborn photography}•

  In this exceptional group shot, I am number 54 and Alison, Miss Super Tall 'n' Sassy, is sporting number 5.  

 In this exceptional group shot, I am number 54 and Alison, Miss Super Tall 'n' Sassy, is sporting number 5.  

Alison and I played basketball together for Wakefield Junior High (go Warriors!). She may never hire me again for sharing this photo, but I think we may have a similar sense of humor, so it should be fine (she types with her fingers crossed).

 

Far more interestingly and current, Alison is now a mom! Woot! I was flattered that she got in touch with me to photograph her little bug Raymond. 

It was so nice to see her again, and meet and work with her family, and Raymond was as cute as can be and such a chill little dude.

• Fall Session Round-Up {boston portrait photographer} •

OK, I'll admit it; I'm putting on my lazy hat right now. Well, no, not really, but I am putting a collection of my favorite shots together from my sessions this season and sharing them with you all together, rather than doing multiple blog entries.

I attempted my annual fall session day before I left on vacation in October, but both the actually event day and it's rain date got cancelled due to stormy skies (shakes fifts at the heavens!). When I returned, I managed to schedule a second attempt, and my clients were excited to try again. Until it began to rain after I got only one session out of the way.

So, off to the second rain date we went (or does that make it the third? I don't know, I've lost track at this point). Some got their shots done on that sunday rain date, others went out of their way to meet me in the middle to get their sessions completed. I hope everyone loved their results!

Thanksgiving is coming, and I'm feeling thankful indeed.
